The equation is derived by making several approximations to the Kirchhoff integral theorem which uses Green’s theorem to derive the solution to the homogeneous wave equation. The fringes extend to infinity in the y direction since the slit and illumination also extend to infinity.

A simple grating consists of a series of slits in a screen. Analytical solutions are not possible for most configurations, but the Fresnel diffraction equation and Fraunhofer diffraction equation, which are approximations of Kirchhoff’s formula for the near field and far fieldcan be applied to a very wide range of optical systems. If the width of the slits is small enough less than the wavelength of the lightthe slits diffract the light into cylindrical waves.

Fresnel developed an equation using the Huygens wavelets together with the principle of superposition of waves, which models these diffraction effects quite well. This is not the case, and this is one of the approximations used in deriving the equation.

Fraunhofer diffraction occurs when: The width of the slit is W. This page was last edited on 9 Octoberat The size of the central band at a distance z is given by. If all the terms in f x ‘y ‘ can be neglected except for the terms in x ‘ and y ‘we have the Fraunhofer diffraction equation. When the quadratic terms cannot be neglected but all higher order difraccjon can, the equation becomes the Fresnel diffraction equation.


The Fraunhofer diffraction equation is a simplified version of the Kirchhoff’s diffraction formula and it can be used to model the light diffracted when both a light source and a viewing plane the plane of observation are effectively at infinity with respect to a diffracting aperture. The angular spacing of the fringes is given by.

Thus, the integral above, which represents the complex amplitude at Pbecomes. When the distance between the aperture and the plane of observation on which the eifraccion pattern is observed is large enough so that the optical path lengths from edges of the aperture to a point of observation differ much less than the wavelength of the light, then propagation paths for individual wavelets from every point on the aperture to the point of observation can be treated as parallel.

The Airy disk can be an important parameter in limiting the ability of an imaging system to resolve closely located objects. We can develop an expression for the far field of a continuous array of point sources of uniform amplitude and of the same phase.

The form of the function is plotted on the right above, for a tabletand it can be seen that, unlike the diffraction patterns produced by rectangular or circular apertures, it has no secondary rings.


Kirchhoff’s diffraction formula – Wikipedia

With a distant light source from the aperture, the Fraunhofer approximation can be used to model the diffracted pattern on a distant plane of observation from the aperture far field. These assumptions are sometimes referred to as Kirchhoff’s boundary conditions. Huygens postulated that every point on a primary wavefront acts as a source of spherical secondary wavelets and the sum of these secondary wavelets determines the form of the wave at any subsequent time.


If the direction cosines of P 0 Q and PQ are. In the far field, propagation paths for individual wavelets from every point on the aperture to the point of observation can be treated as parallel, and the positive lens focusing lens focuses all parallel rays toward the lens to a point on the focal plane the focus point position depends on the angle of parallel rays with respect to the optical axis.

A grating re defined in Born and Wolf as “any arrangement which imposes on an incident wave a periodic variation of amplitude or phase, or both”. Views Read Edit View history.

The difracdion A 1 above is replaced by a wavefront from P 0which almost fills the aperture, and a portion of a df with a vertex at P 0which is labeled A 4 in the diagram. The complex amplitude difradcion the disturbance at a distance r is given by. The complex amplitude of the wavefront at r 0 is given by.

The solution provided by the fraunhoffr theorem for a monochromatic source is:.

In opticsthe Fraunhofer diffraction equation is used to model the diffraction of waves when the diffraction dr is viewed at a long distance from the diffracting object, and also when it is viewed at the focal plane of an imaging lens.
